I also had problems with 98se on this board. I suggest you upgrade to windows 2k, available at 9software for $75-80. You may also have a bad cd. Even the smallest scratches will cause corruption in files.

VIA has always had issues with 9x. People blamed 9x, but for some reason, Intel didn't have these problems.

The P4X400 is a piece of [-peep-]. SiS chipsets are both better performing and more stable, allong with superior compatability and cheaper price.

People might suggest getting a new OS. Well, a new motherboard is often cheaper. Too bad VIA already got your money, supporting VIA is like supporting a terrorist organization IMO.
